NEW-YORK, March 8.
The Citizens of New-York having as
sembled yeftcrday, in the large room of
the Federal-Hall, purfaant to their ad
journment of Thutfday, 2 7thult. to dis
cuss the resolutions reported by their com
mittee. took them into confidenaion ;
and the fame being read, and afterwards
considered separately, and difcufled, were
unanimoujly agreed to,and applauded with
repeated cheers. The Hall,not withstand
ing the very stormy weather, was remar
kably crouded, and contained on a mode
rate estimate, 2000 citizens.
The unanimity and modeiation that
prevailed, afforded the highest fatisfac
tion to every friend to order ; while the
firm, but decent spirit of the resolutions,
can give no offence to any, but those
whose approbation freemen are not felici
tous to obtain. The citizens resolved that
their thanks should be presented to their
committee, and then departed with the
greatest order and decorum.
[Here follow the Resolutions.]
Resolved, That sovereign and indepen
dent nations, in cafe of war existing be
tween neighbouring or foreign powers,
have a right to declate their determination
to preserve a ltri£l neutrality towards the
refpe&ive nations at war: that the fulfil
ment of treaties existing between either
of the belligerent powers, and the neu
tral nation, published and declared previ
ous to the existence of the cause of war,
ought not to be construed as a breach of
that neutrality, which they declare them
selves determined to observe ; and conse
quently, that the United States of Ame
rica, as a free, sovereign, and indepen
dent power, have a right, founded upon
the law of nations, to declare and pre
serve their neutrality, at the fame time
that they fulfill, with justice and integri
ty, previously existing treaties.
Resolved, That when either of the bel
ligerent powers interrupt filch neutrality,
so declared and persisted in, by committing
spoliation and depredation upon the pro
perty of such neutral nations or its citi
zens, they are guilty of a violent infrac
tion of the laws of nations, and an unjult
exercise yf their power; and therefore,
the capture for prize or condemnation of
the vefTels and cargoes of the citizens of
these "United States, not concerned in a
contraband trade, by either of the bellige
rent powers or their fubjetts, i 3 unjuftifia
ble, and an infringement on those privi
leges, which the citizens of an indepen
dent and neutral nation have a right to
exercise and enjoy.
R T I S E R.
[Whole A T o. 554.
Refolveri, That it is the opinion of this
meeting, that it is the duty of belligerent
nations to lefien the horrors of war, and
mitigate diltref*-, not only by permitting
neutral nations to remain in tranquility,
but to protect all their l.iwiul commcrcc
and navigation ; when therefore,they mul
tiply the evils of war without ncceffity, &
wantonly and in a piratical manner har
rafsthe pefions, or make prize of the pro
perty of nations or their citizens who are
at peace, and declare their intentions to
remain ip, thsy violate the laws of nations
the obligations of justice, of nature, and
Resolved, That the making of veflels
or cargoes, the property of neutral na
tions or their citizens prize, or forcibly de
taining the fame, to the damag# and loss
of the owners, not being contraband, is
unjuft„and that full compensation andref
titution is due from the belligerent power
so trefpalfing, to the party injured, and
to the nation thus insulted, and ought to
be demanded of right, and if refilled, that
the neutral nation thus situated, is juitifi
able by the laws of uature and of nations
to Seek restitution, in any mode the molt
likely to obtain redress.
Resolved, That the conduct of Great
Britain since the treaty of peace with the
United States of America, has not been
conformable to the true intent and mean
ing of that treaty ; but on the contrary,
by withholding the posts on our north
western frontier, and keeping up a milita
ry establishment within our territory, the
government of Great Britain has violated
their national faith, and usurped the rights
of our people ; that the non-fulfilment of
tiiis part of the treaty, oil the part of
Great Britain, occasion» very serious in
convenience to our country and govern
ment, particularly as fueh conduct lias a
tendency to keep alive the hostile spirit of
the savages, and impedes those measures,
which would produce on the part of our
government, pcace and tranquility to our
Resolved, That as far as the govern
ment of the United States have pursued
raeafures to effect the fulfilment of exist
ing treaty—to preserve its neutrality—
and to obtain a restitution of property to
its plundered citizens, it is entitled to the
warmest approbation of the people. But
that the delays which have been experi
enced in procuring relief from the evils
complained of j however unavoidable on
the part of government; have been pro
ductive of great distress to the people;
and that every day that passes finds us left
prepared for decisive operations, becaafe
every day discovers a new faarifice to fo
reign rapacity ; and perhaps when forced
to the last means of redress, we shall be
found without (hips, without feamcn, and
be the poverty attendant on a ruined trade.
Resolved, That in the progress of the
important questions which at present en
fage the attention of, the Executive and
.egiflative Branches of the government
of the United States, it (hould to them
appear expedient to place the ports and
harbors of our country in a refpe&able
state of defence, capable ot placing us as a
nation, above the fear of injury, or the ap
prehensions of insult ; or to make any mi
litary or marine arrangements, which the
exigency of affairs may require—That the
citizens of New-York, jealous for the ho
nor, and willing to support the dignity
of their country and government, will
cheerfully submit to any tax (if the pre
sent revenues of their country are irtcom
petent) which in the wifdorn of their r~-
prefentarivrt may appear necessary to de
fray the expence attending the support of
our independence as a nation, the honor of
our flag, and the dignity of our country
Resolved, That the chairman of th's
meeting be dire£kd to fend to Mr. John
Watt«, the reprefeutative of the city and
county in Congress, the aforegoing resolu
tions, in which the sense of his conftituenti
in this meeting it expreflcd.
